    Hello.
    I have this problem on my laptop that started a week ago while playing a game.The screen froze and i had to manually restart.After rr the 6-way monitor error showed up at boot screen and before entering windows the screen went dark and stay that way.In safe mode the laptop was able to boot into windows but still with the split screen.

    At first i tought it was an overheating problem so i disassembled and cleaned the dust from the cooling sistem.Then i tried a bios update.Then i uninstalled my graphic drivers installed different versions, reinstalled windows,changed from windows 7 to Vista and back, dissasembled it again and checked for loose cables with no results.
    Yesterday i turn it on and the screen was back to normal and i could browse internet or play music.I tryed a movie and after 2 mins the screen froze , i rr and the 6 way split screen was back.I'm tired and out of ideeas.Sorry for the text wall and possibles english mistakes.Any opinios on my problem?

    MEDION AKOYA md 96640
    Original Windows Vista®Home Premium

    Most likely it's the nvidia chip for your video. There have been lots of problems with that chip. Hp had lots of problems and so did other manufacturers.

    tnx for reply. i am confused tough because after afew weeks of split screen and crashes, today everything went back to normal, one screen was running for hours with absolutly no problem at all, as it was the day i bought it.And this, without me doing anything else than hopelessly turning it on and off a few times to see if the problem persists.:eek:
